    callofduty.com has published a blog entry from developer Infinity Ward / Sledgehammer detailing some of the features and improvements that will be in the upcoming MW3, to be released on November 8th:
    [​IMG]

    The blog also answers some hot-button questions, such as:

    Worryingly though:
    So, does this mean that gamers with 120Hz monitors will be stuck at 60fps gameplay? This surely would be a major annoyance and certainly would be for this writer. There's lots of other questions covered in the blog, but the decent graphics options are surely one of the things that make it stand out from a console port - a pet hate of PC gamers, with their vastly more powerful hardware. The maximum multiplayer count is just 18 currently, but this might increase by release day and of course, it will have LAN support. There's lots more good info over at the blog.
     
    jmcslob and Damn_Smooth say thanks.

    Dedicated servers are NOT ranked servers. But you will be able to play with most unlocked weapons. That will depend on how the admin setups the server. However, you won't be able to get any stats nor other achievement unlocks afaik. I really don't now if dedicated servers mean BO servers or from someone's home network. Also, I'm not clear on the matchmaking process (as that is ranked). So far I get the impression it will be just like IWnet. But until more details are provided I'm not 100% sure.

    Nice news post Qubit, to the point rather than protracted.

    Definitely a step in the right direction for CoD.

    Thanks K. :) Short and sweet is nice, too. How long it is depends on the subject matter, especially with an editorial like the one on the technology show the other day. They can take ages to write.

    stats nor other achievement

    seriously who cares about that ... a serious PC gamer ... it's not an e-sport and achivements are nonessential anyways

    EDIT; I know it's been much agains MW3 since the MW2 debocle but let's fase it this has no base now - the old team is gone , if you don't know , MW2 was purposely sucked to fuck the PC community in order to stir up for activision "kick on the way out"

    The Bowling doesn't really make decisions at IW and the current IW team is trying to fix reputation from MW2 .... "" You do not have to rank up in Public games to have access to weapons in Dedicated Servers, ""

    I think people will still have negativity - albeit currently it looks baseless as this is practially a non issue, who cares about ranks , did you had them in COD2 , nope , and i played COD2 for 1500 hours and it's never boring (xfire proof)


    But i know i won't like the story - im not into there cinematic USA-Vs-Middle-east kind of crap anymore ... i don't really care about the topic of the story. Simply i played so much of call of duty it's just enough once , and not that i hate it ... certainly i do hate MW2 and hopefully MW3 could fix that if it's more like COD4 ... and less "mindless shooting running gunning spawn kill".

    Yeah man when the editorials are done well they can be interesting reads but other times you just want to know the score so to speak.

    In other words, they have "levelled down" the features to the lowest common denominator. :rolleyes: Notice how vague and full of spin they were with that answer. I'll bet it's because you probably can't 'lean' on a console.

    Very hard when you've got a large company that insists on making the product "different" to the previous one and decisions are made by committee. :rolleyes: You then get useful features pulled or mangled and various other stupid design decisions. That make you do this: :banghead:

    For an example, compare the menus and options between Portal 1 and Portal 2. I can't remember the details now off the top of my head, but I compared them side by side at the time and P1 was definitely better (although the critical gameplay was much better and more advanced in P2). There's a current "standard" for writing game interfaces nowadays that seems to be based on the restriction of consoles and is dumbed down compared to what you used to get. :shadedshu

    ooohhh oooohhh dedicated user hosted server = brilliant, the first literate educated game in 5 years, freaking awesome. :toast: :rockout:

    No more need to rely on incompetent hosting company, their primitive configured networks and staff that does not even know where the power button is on their mobile phones or pc's.

    Selling points: :toast:
    1st, This user hosted dedicated server alone = sale or buying 3 copy's no question asked even if the game sucks or not, no idea yet, still buying 3 copy's.
    Damn just when BF3 was going to get my cash.

    2nd, Does MW3 have ghost recon / graw co-op ogr equivalent gameplay 12 man team versus user created map and AI ?
    BF3 apparently has ghost recon co-op ogr type gameplay, not sure about map editor.

    Stats, who cares about a wall hacked stat.

    I know I know, it's just sad that it seems to be asking the world for a game that is actually good not a re-skin of the same game I played 5 years ago.

    Too little too late. Go to hell Activision/Infinity Ward. Battlefield 3 has already taken control of my body.

    *Modern warfare had dedicated servers, nothing new.

    *Second of all, DONT even GET me started on this topic. Yeah of-course your going to have the REGULAR Call of Duty experience, but that's all its going to ultimately be with a few extra's ONCE(more like 4th time) again.

    *Buy the game, I wont negatively judge any of you. Being human is buying and enjoying the latest stuff.

    *But my Fuckin $%#, this game can take this biggest ass shoving of its life for ALLLLL i am concerned.
    THEY have no IMAGINATION, no INGENUITY to create something REALLY different, or grow the BALLS to really start dropping price's.

    *There ENTIRE MARKETING is based on that mw2 was the BEST selling game/franchise developed, so EVERYBODY should just buy another 60$ RERUN with even more tweaks just because, that's all i CAN truly say.

    *NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING COMPARED TO THE ORIGINAL CALL OF DUTY: MODERNWARFARE. SIMPLISTIC, RELIABLE, AND DEPENDED ON. It's been twisted SUPPOSEDLY BETTER, but even after ALL this franchise release, I guarantee people still start up the original.

    *I cant even explain it, but it feel's like the HAIRY POTTER movie gauntlet just a little less ingenuity involved. You cant even tell me there creative, that thier releasing proper game's that really step it up a notch from previous generation, or your on a meth binge from hell.

    *Fuck this franchise, way to many repeating redundant retweaked same ass run in gun. I have tons of idea's for call of duty, SWITCH THE ENGINE UP, CREATE BETTER OPTIMIZATION SO THEY HAVE BETTER GRAPHICS. SECOND OF ALL CREATE A SMOOTH COVER TO WALL/obstacle SYSTEM. I don't even design games.

    Are you fucking serious. They're pretty much giving us CoD4 again and saying how good it is they have given us back what they took away in the first place for no obvious reason. They can stick their MW3 up their arse. No innovation at all since CoD4 and infact was a step back then forward again.

    When I get older, I'm going to try to make documentaries on how the gaming industry started to become the shit in the sewer. Hard economic time's, but more charges. There totally going out the window for a while @ least.
